I've been a teacher for the past 17 years. Five in a basic bilingual 1st grade. 2 in an SEI 2nd grade, as well as 1 in a Dual Immersion Kinder and now First. I've also worked as an English Learner Coordinator but now I am happy to be back in the classroom.
Dual Immersion is a waivered program where English speaking students and Spanish speaking English learners are in the same classroom learning how to read and write in both English and Spanish. Our students are bilingual and biliterate by the time they are in 5th grade. Dual Immersion Enthusiast is me!
This is a daily schedule I have posted in my classroom. I got the idea of using pictures from Ms. Cooleys 1st grade schedule on First Grader....at Last. I changed it a bit but the general idea is there. Ofcourse once again you can see clearly what subjects I teach in Spanish by the color red and which subjects are taught in English by the color blue. There are three subjects which we alternate by days which was hard to color code so I just left them blue, Read Aloud, Writers workshop and Math. In the future I might change these to show both colors like Science/Social/Art section but for now I'm just going to leave it as is.
